Short post

It's a week to due date. Not that it matters now the induction is booked, but it felt odd NOT posting something this week given I have every Saturday for... well a long time :oD

It's also my mother-in-laws birthday today: HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATE! Sorry I've not been able to present you with a new grandchild for your birthday, we'll have to consider him/her a belated gift when they finally show up.

Although, this is a good point for me to record some last details. Like my weight. I am 15 stone 11lb this morning, so that's 221 lb. A total pregnancy gain of exactly 20lb, which for some one of my size pre-preg is pretty good! Especially since I have been tarred with this GD brush (I've got an apt thought the post today for the 16th June to test me and see where I am post preg). I'm recording that on my Weight Watchers page and I guess it wont change now until I've had Baby.... And then the fun starts! Ha! Time to get trim, stay happy & balanced, and make healthy milk for my baby.

I've asked Mark to take one last Bump photo on Wed morning before we set off for the hospital which I'll try to post before I go. I'm tempted to get the tape measure round my belly too, just to see how big I've actually managed to get! I feel MASSIVE!

Gah! I'm going to TRY not to post random pointless posts for the next 4 days. I've said pretty much everything there is to say about this preg now. It's just that now it's pretty much the only thing on my mind! Even when I think about Mark and Jack etc it's almost always in context of the pregnancy, the birth, the baby.... I suppose it's only natural. I am about to undergo a huge life change, not to mention one of the most dangerous things a body can do. But I hate it when people only have one theme of conversation.... and that's exactly what's happened to me these last few weeks and months.

I am hereby BANNING myself from posting between now and ... lets say Tuesday (because by then I'll be flipping out and will NEED to vent!) Unless baby turns up early or something ;op

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
